DNA sequences of birds` poop may help avoid `bird strike`
Washington: The DNA sequences of insects and large predatory birds may help stop bird-airplane collisions, a study has suggested.
Researchers have found that the DNA of birds` poop will reveal the food that attracts the birds to the airport and reducing the food resources would help lessen the number of birds hovering around.
The study suggested that the airport s must practice rodent control and place grass species that are less hospitable to tasty insects.
The cost the airline industry suffers due ` bird strike` is approximately 1 billion dollars per year.
